The new sailing class PAC52 will be featured on the 2017 regatta circuit, with the one-design performance vessel ready to debut as early as May.
Developers of the PAC52 vessel based its hull shape on the current SuperSeries TP52 boats. The Pac 52 vessel, however, features a lighter engine, greater stability and a taller mast for greater sail area, according to the developer. Boats have basic accommodations for coastal and offshore sailing. The single rudder can be either tiller or wheel steered.
